The festive spirit of Navarathri is incomparable. The vibrant colours, the loud music and the dancing of happy youngsters can be seen only on these nine days. Navarathri is an Indian festival celebrated to honour goddess Durga who killed the demon Mahishasura. She is the epitome of female power, or Shakti. Durga puja is done differently all around the country, but the Gujaratis love to do Garba dance. Garba or Dandiya is a form of dance that involves the movements and beating of two small sticks held in both the hands. It is usually played in couples or huge groups. Dandiya is so popular that it is played all over the country today, especially during the Durga Puja time.
Delhi hosts a number of Dandiya nights and Durga Puja celebrations come October. Below is the list of all the programmes involving dandiya in Delhi –
